The 2004 Libertarian Presidential Candidate, Michael Badnarik teaches his famous class about the Constitution.

If you don't know the difference between a right and a privilege, this is a must see! If you think you know the difference, then answer this question: Is the US a democracy? For the answer (surprisingly), watch this.

For more info on Badnarik's 2004 campaign for President, please visit http://www.badnarik.org

Imagine Bush and Kerry in a debate with Badnarik... He'd wipe the floor with both of them.

Subject: Speaking truth....to emptiness
Dear Mr. Morpheusone,

there is no need for panic.

We can see that you are no libertarian.

you are opposed to liberty, the freedom granted by an Almighty actually-existing sovereign God to learn how to conduct life and living in self-responsibility.

Perhaps you should start with the standard admission. Here is what you might wish to say:


I, morpheusone, am a communist.

I admit I have a problem.

I admit that I have a problem with freedom and perhaps with white people.

I have believed the propaganda fed to me while I was in public school, and I do not know how to get rid of it.

In fact I confess my standard distrust of the history of white people, and especially if they are God-loving, god-fearing, history knowing, or respectors of the American Founding Fathers.

I know that my own model is Karl Marx, and that I can only relax when a full dictatorship comes to power. I worship the New World Order, even though I cannot officially admit to any religious tendency.

My happiness starts with the misery of others.

When I have free time, I harang others who believe in goodness, kindness, love and being positive, and I try to convince them
that any respect for other races (other than my priveledged own), or any respect for Christianity, should be met with scorn, contempt, mockery or derision.

I have allowed hatred to permeate my life. I hope to get others to despise their own heritage as much as I despise myself and my own.

And I have taken to a personal emulation of Morris Dees, and the billionaire-funded ADL and Southern Poverty Law Center.

It (the SPL) was named that so that we could mislead even more people.

I try to goad people into strong reactions and insults, and then turn around and use that against them. Then I blame whatever they value.

I am paid for this, but if I weren't, I'd be a volunteer.

Others may think that this reflects poorly on me, but unless either the great vanishing (rapture) hits, or until the day when the
system prevents me from buying or selling without a mark in my own right hand or forehead, then I may have to re-evaluate my own understanding of reality.

In the meantime, I will allow my bitterness to serve as my shield, and my anger against all white culture and history to serve as the means by which I complain bitterly, trying to escape my own historic roots.

Morpheusone.

- - - -

Something like that...would be a good start.

In the meantime, I would recommend to you the writings of George Washington,
or John Locke

Subject: Libertarianism is anti-American! Period. Point. Blank.
Libertarianism is the political arm of white supremacy. Anyone who knows both ideologies, in enough detail, can see that they both support the same things politically, specifically on the Federal level and on the global/world stage.

While most libertarians may not be white supremacists, they are all "white supremacist shills" bc, they support an ideology that wants to subjugate & enslave all of us for the purpose of furthering it's own developmentally stunted, fear, hate, scare, rumor & smear mongering, tinfoil hat-wearing, Kool-Aid sipping, conspiracy theories.

All of you ppl are already slaves!

Subject: This is empowering!
The closest thing that I have ever found to natural law on any governments documents are those of our constitution. To me this means that each and every one of us may choose our own path to happiness, or better said seek our own utopia with out the hassles of anybody on your back making you do it differently than you would have if left alone. As long as the individual understands his rights he is empowered with this knowledge, but if he doesn't understand his rights how will he protect himself when Uncle SAM comes a knocking?
Mister Badnarick, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for these courses, I have sent them far and wide. You have awakened me from my slumber, once again, thanks. M.R. in N.H.

P.s., I met you at the Porcfest Mike, Thanks for the autographed copy of your book, which was great I may add... It is good to be king, and know it!

Subject: Frightening
This is truly scary stuff. the so-called "libertarian" seeks to subvert our political process to make way for corporatism. The "libertarian" would deny a number of basic human rights, including some of those recognized by civilized man for thousands of years.

To the "libertarian", slavery is freedom...slavery to the corporate master.

I suggest that any of the naive who are attracted to this perverse philosophy study this so-called "libertarianism" and see it for what it is - Orwellian.

Subject: Proclamation of Individual Sovereignty
Now that you are armed with this knowledge, take the next step by making a promise to yourself consistent with the 9th Amendment. The Proclamation of Individual Sovereignty is freely given to the public as public domain and was first published at http://boltusa.org/node/65. You may claim it, personalize it, and adopt it as your own.

PROCLAMATION OF INDIVIDUAL SOVEREIGNTY

I hereby resolve that, in the coming year and every year to follow, I will continue to strive to be free as the wind; as free as anyone naturally endowed with life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness can possibly be.

I reaffirm my sovereign rights as a free individual, equal to all, and in forced servitude to none. I renounce all claims by those who might endeavor to unnaturally govern over me. All attempts to force my adoption of unwanted beliefs will be met with fierce resistance. I renounce all claims of those who feign to speak in my stead. As a free person with a mind of my own, I pledge no allegiance to representatives selected by a majority of misinformed neighbors, and shall not willingly abide by their decisions and dictates. All attempts by those who might attempt to impose restrictions on my personal beliefs, in violation of my sovereignty as a free individual, will be challenged. Let it be known that all forces opposed to liberty and sovereign rights of individuals shall be met with resistance, to the best of my ability.

Affirmed,

Subject: Michael Badinarik Update
Michael Badinarik is currently a National Director for the new freedom movement that is sweeping the nation. He is also the State Coordinator for Texas. Michael Badinarik, Bob Schultz, G. Edward Griffin and others, have called for a Continental Congress in November of 2009. This is a grass roots movement of the people, for the people, and by the people. It allows the people of each state to nominate and elect delegates to represent their state in the CC2009.

Just as the Continental Congress of 1774 gave us our beloved Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress of 2009 is a movement to restrain the government and enforce the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. This is an opportunity for American citizens to stand up for their beloved Constitution and show the government that we will hold them accountable to adhere to the laws of the Republic and the people they serve.

Here is a link to the Continental Congress 2009 website.

Subject: Badnarik and EricWhoRU can open up your mind...
There will always be two camps:

Those that believe men are capable of self-governance and those who must be ruled like beasts of the field.

It has been my eperience that those two camps are irreconcileable. Those who subscribe to the belief that most men need to be ruled over by elitist elements are anti-Christians and deny the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This includes self-professed Christians, Anarchists, Satanists, Luciferians, Deists, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.

The other camp believes in the True and Living God; He who grants each of His created men with inalienable rights. Privileges are for citizens and chattel per the auspices of State. Rights are for those who understand that freedom and liberty are not the same thing. An individual may be imprisoned and yet have liberty. But a person without liberty can never be free. Except within the confines of a person's mind. And that would be the makings of an excellent form of slavery; the ultimate slave is the one that believes himself to be free when in fact he is quite regulated in his daily life.

The Magna Carta does not grant you freedom from tyranny. Nor does the Declaration of Independence. Although the latter declares such it is an announcement not a license. Physical freedom comes at a very high price. If a man is not willing to give up his life to maintain or preserve such freedom then it is unobtainable to him.

Now, for a more radical concept. The U.S. Constitution was not written to free the common man. Why would the former aristocrats give up their station? Why would a man like Thomas Jefferson, who owned some 200 slaves, give credence to such a document if it made the common man equal to him and those of his ilk?

As for the the Bill of Rights they were necessary to get the U.S. Constitution off the ground due to the unpopularity of the document. The U.S. Constitution was not well received in its day. The Confederation was hijacked by the aristocrats, which you know as WE THE PEOPLE, and pandered to the masses of Americans as necessary for their freedom. What it ended up creating was a corporation operating out Washington D.C. that gave us a king and the American version of the House of Lords and House of Commons.

Washington rules over all the citizens because they volunteer into a system without even knowing what is going on. It is very similar to the movie THE MATRIX. The average citizen does not want to know what is really going on around them so long as everything is rosy.

But everything is not rosy. That birth certificate you possess, that driver's license you carry, that national ID card that you will soon be mandated to have on your person 24 hours a day under penalty of law, the court systems across this land, the incorporating of your hometown, placing a license plate on your vehicle, etc. are all evidences that you are the property of State; you are a CITIZEN; participation in this system is strictly voluntary. Even though you do not understand it you have volunteered into it just as your parents and grand-parents before you. Like a slow boiled frog the sheeple have been incrementally enslaved. Think not? Then why is socialism rampant in this land today?

Just give the sheeple his bread, wine and circuses and he is lulled back to sleep. Until the shearing or slaughter finds its way to his door step and that of his neighbors. Hitler was democratically elected by a wide margin. So go ahead and vote for the lesser of two evils; evil always begets evil so do not be surprised when you find yourself surrounded by more of the same throughout your days on this earth.

As the True Christians are persecuted in the coming days the world will become a very dark place. The purification of God's people has begun. Meanwhile the rest of humanity is being called out of Babylon but most have not he eyes and ears to come to their senses. God's chosen come to understand liberty in its truest form. The rest will panic and suffer without ever understanding, in this life, what is really going as Satan and his minions make a conflagaration of this planet under a one world order of peace and safety for all sheeple.

Take control of your life and examine all the traditions that have so inured you. You have been lied to since birth; Santa Claus; the Tooth Fairy; the Easter Bunny; the origins of Valentine's Day; Halloween; Christmas. Paganism prevails and has always prevailed in this world. But soon comes a day of reckoning and the powers prevailing in this world will become powerless.

Wake up or you will be living in a police state where the right to life will become a fairy tale.

Subject: Information about Michael's class and what he's doing today.
Michael Badnarik wrote on his website (constitutionpreservation.org)
-
"I recently discovered that this class was presented in Houston on September 8th, 2001, only three days before the tragedy in New York City. The video was digitized by my friend Kelly, and posted on his website. These seven video files rapidly became the most downloaded files on his site, and there are now close to twenty archive sites on the internet where they can be found. NO, I do not make the three-ring binder handout available anymore. This was only the ninth time I ever presented my class, and it is less sophisticated than my 12-hour DVD version of the class. In spite of that, I suspect I may be more famous (better known) for these videos than I am for running for President of the United States."

What's Michael Badnarik up to these days?
He has decided to join the Free State Project to further to cause of liberty. This is what he has said about it:
-
"I am proud to be one of the many American patriots who endorses the Free State Project. Many people claim to support freedom, however the members of the Free State Project have made a commitment to DO something about it. Like the signers of the Declaration of Independence, they have pledged their lives and fortunes in support of the cause of Liberty. They have promised to leave their homes across America to relocate in New Hampshire to become part of the biggest freedom movement since the Pilgrims left England on the Mayflower.

As a proud member of the Free State Project, I want to help prove that Liberty promotes happiness, and a higher standard of living. I want to rekindle the spirit of independence by demonstrating that people are capable of living peacefully with little or no government interference in their lives. If you believe that you are the best person to make the crucial decisions about your life, please join me as a member of the Free State Project. Make a commitment to come to New Hampshire to help me "Light the fires of Liberty". It's not every day that you have an opportunity to shape the course of history."

Subject: Ignorant Ramblings
JNagarya: Your comments are utterly ridiculous and ignorant.

First, the Constitution is steeped in history, particularly that of the Founding Fathers and the Revolution for Independence. Libertarians are well-versed in that history, their viewpoints regarding the Constitution and freedom being nigh impossible without it. Indeed, libertarians advocate a return to the past, particularly in how the Constitution (and its purpose) were originally viewed historically in the past.

As far as jabbering goes, you are one to talk, Sir, as you ignorantly jabber on about libertarians wanting to eliminate the rule of law! Preposterous and absurd. Indeed, libertarians seek to RESTORE the Rule of Law rather than allow the government to do as it wishes and continually break the law, namely the Constitution, the highest law in the land.

And then you try to obfuscate and confuse the issue by claiming the Founding Fathers were "liberals" which is true in a technical sense -- but likewise it is also technically true that today's Democrats were the original Republicans. You fail to take into consideration the classical meaning of "liberal" in that era versus what it means today -- but you knew that already, in fact you purposely used it to obfuscate and confuse anyone who reads your vitriol and doesn't know the difference. I would commend you on your cleverness but it wasn't all that clever and as they say in Internet parlance "I see what you did there."

Your comment on the meaning of the Second Amendment shows you are stupendously void of the very history you blast libertarians for lacking. Sir, the Founders fought and died to stop a Tyrant named George from enslaving them. Don't spit on their deeds by claiming untruths about them. They knew as well as you do that without a defense against government LIKE THE ONE THEY FOUGHT, tyranny and corruption will reign. This is obvious in the lengths they went to to protect us with the Bill of Rights, but if you're too blind to see that then all you have to do is read their own words, they wrote plenty of documents besides the Declaration and the Constitution and they were quite plain in what they believed. I recommend starting with Jefferson. That alone should be enough.

And then you blather on about libertarians being "corporatist". No Sir, it is ignorant Neocons such as yourself that support the depredations of corporations with big government interference in the natural course of business. There is no actual thing you can touch called a corporation, there are only people. Corporations only exist on paper and can only cause harm if allowed to via corrupt politicians asking for bribes. Capitalism is not evil, Sir. So-called corporations in bed with corrupt government stooges are.

There can be no political ideology greater than the freedom for men and women to go about their daily business without government interference. Only when one person has harmed another and violated the rights of life, liberty or property of another should the law you are so fond of touting be involved and even then it should not be administered by the most corrupt, inept and anti-freedom group that exists.

Subject: Re: JNagarya
Far be it to give you advice on how to post replies.

But more for the sake of other users here:

You use fanciful words that only lead me to believe you're hiding behind them. For what a man can say genuinely, he can say in plain understanding of the common ear.

Yes, he could be too idealistic, yes the definition of stupidity is to repeat mistakes...and still Michael makes good points.

If you don't agree with everything, point it out. But if you came here to base a few of his mistakes as the basis for discrediting EVERYTHING he had to say, then keep your comments where they belong...in the safety of your own mind.

He does speak some truth, and I admire that. We are too apathetic, and the American Society has a ton of people that seem to be just as you talk and act. Well informed, well versed in speaking, and full of fiery apathetic support.


I am personally tired of apathy and doing nothing. If you are afraid of people thinking for themselves (which is defined in your post) then good!

Be scared and do something about it. We are apathetic, but is that because we are happy? I doubt it. I believe we are being conditioned from birth to be pacified with lots of bread and entertainment...as long as we work...obediently...willingly.


In and of itself, this is fine, but allows bad things to come in the long term. We become pampered slaves, slowly and willingly.

Michael said freedom is hard work, and not everyone should feel the need to fight tooth and nail for it. He realizes people from a lot of angles. You should try it....if nothing else than to soften the nasty things you may or may not keep to yourself.

Reviewer: JNagarya - 1.00 out of 5 stars - January 24, 2008
Subject: Beyond uninformed, dangerous --
It's unfortunate the inability to distingusih between law, on one hand -- as in "Constitution" -- and on the other, olitical idiology. I've yet to listen to are talk with a "Libertarian" who knew the difference; who did not substitute political idiology for law.

Worse, the "Libertarian" "philosophy" lives in an ahistorical vacuum -- it's as if the past never happened; thus it is possible to posit reinventing the wheel, from scratch, as if the wheel hadn't already been invented. As if it weren't already known that a square wheel won't roll.

Clue: man tried living in societies without the rule of law. It didn't work because man is imperfect. So we have "Libertarians" jabbering about eliminating the rule of law, and substituting therefor man's entusiasm for accepting personal responsibility.

And then there's the additional flaw of invoking the Founders and Framers as being "Libertarian" -- or "Libertarian"-like. In fact, they were Liberals.

As for the "Libertarian"'s bogus claim that the Second Amendment protects an individual right: the reality is this: No sane, non-sucicdal society leaves dangerous substances or objects lying around unregulated. The further reality is this -- easily learned by reading the debates by the Framers of the Bill of Rights: As in "We the people," in the Second Amendment is _PLURAL_. The Framers of that which became the Second Amendment did debate a possible individual right: that of the "person" -- indivdual -- "religiously scrupulous of" -- AGAINST -- "bearing arms" not being "compelled" -- INVOLUNTARY -- to perform militia DUTY.

Those are not complicated facts, and are easily found for oneself: _Creating the Bill of Rights: The Documentary Record from the First Federal Congress_ (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins, 1991), Ed. by Helen E. Veit; and _The Complete Bill of Rights: The Drafts, Debates, Sources, & Origins_ (NY: Oxford, 1997), Ed. by Neil H. Cohen. Both are in print and readily availabe.

The corporatist "Libertarian" -- for that is the reality behind "Libertarian"ism -- laissez faire non-regulation of the powerful -- Badnarik won't tell you those facts, doubtless becaues he doesn't know them. But, then again, "Libertarians" are against the rule of law to begin with -- wanting to dump it all for a tried-and-failed pie-in-the-sky delusion -- so have netierh interest in learning the actual law, nor the willingness to distnguish between law and political idiology instead of substituting the latter for the former.

It is not up to Michael, Congress, a church, mayor, etc. It is up to us, only our government has, as usual, covered all the exits. At this point in time the fact I support Ron Paul as President I qualify as a terrorist, due to the fact he speaks of disbanding the federal reserve.
As Michael declares, very early on, that it is not his job to protect us. WE HAVE TO E-D-U-C-A-T-E OURSELVES TO THE TRUTH AND STAND FOR IT!

What we get in this country, as with any other I am aware of, is just enough information to make us "believe" ourselves to be free, while in thrall ,unconsciously, to the mechanizations that keep that information from us. At least until the "powers-that-be" feel they are ready to stand up to anything the People may present to correct the problem.

Michael, as with Carl Miller, leave it up to us to figure out how to live our lives here, while allowing others to do the same. Can you not understand WHY our children need to be self-centered and "free" to do as they wish?!

Badnarik should become a schoolteacher. This material is infinitely more valuable than the Global Warming propaganda they are using to terrify our children needlessly.

This seminar could very well be the most educational 7 hours of your life. Break it up over the course of a week if necessary, but do watch it in its entirety.

Subject: Lots of foundation for the seminar
Todd, try reading the Federalist Papers and other writings of the founders of this nation if you want to know where these "baseless" assertions come from. It's obvious you haven't done your homework, obvious that you're relying on what you learned in government schools, which are now banning the founding documents.

Also try reading some of the investigations done into the Federal Reserve Act, Fourteenth Amendment, and Sixteenth Amendment. Read carefully, and do your own research as well.

Subject: Sorry but this is not excellent
Thanks for an interesting presentation, probably as good as the average community college professor. But Mr. Badnarik himself is living within his own frame of reference, his own ideological assumptions that affect the presentation badly. I found it painful, again and again to hear him state some assertion about what the constitution "is", as if it were received knowledge. There is very little factual proof offered for his countless statements of what the constitution is, or what the authors were thinking or intending. BOTTOM LINE the constitution allows us all to live, and keep out of each others' way, while *not* agreeing on all these things Badnarik asserts about property rights and so forth.

Subject: Live free or die slaves
I have watched all the video's several times. In my opinion they are great and the dialogue and the analogies he uses really put it in to perspective. If you truely get what he is saying you are probly as scared as I am.

The truth is we all have a job to do and to be perfectly honest,it is an up hill battle. I am scared to death, but Iam willing to give everything for the future of our kid's.

Just think about it. If it is this bad now, how bad is it going to be when my four year old little
girl grows up and has to go work for slave wages? I feel paralized and helpless. But I refuse to believe that there is nothing I can do.

The gov't has not really left us any choice other then to take up arms. They are saying if you want your freedom come and take it if you can, because we aren't giving it back. They have created to many jobs that have to do with controling our lives. The people that have these gov't jobs will fight to keep them and that means the control will not stop. So what are we to do???

If you have ever really listened to the the bands on your twisted transistor(radio) today, such as Nine Inch Nails, Slip Knot, Avenge Sevenfold, Metallica, Eminem, Tool, Rage Against The Machine, The Offspring, KORN, Green Day, ect. You would hear the rythum of a war drum. For instance Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor in his album WITH TEETH he is Asking if you "are going to bite the hand that feeds you or are you going to stay down on your knees". SLIP KNOT is like, the new age Religous music and in my opinion they ROCK!! TOOL ask you if you "are going to bow down to the New World Order" and also how they "sure could use a vacation from this bull-shit three ring circus side show". Rage Against the Machine(Politicle Musicle Revolutionist) covers just about every thing, kind of like Michael Badnarik.

I would like to know what the remedy is to the D.M.V. situation, if we have bought a used car. Is it the UCC1 financing agreement/securety agreement as per California V.C. 370 ???

To the government drones that may read this review: I would like to quote something from a movie, "I didn't come here to tell you how it's going to end, I came here to tell you how it's going to begin"(The MATRIX).

Subject: wake up people
He is trying to tell us that the government is taking all our rights away from us.. doesnt anyone care that we have the right to bear arms yet we have to ask permission( a permit) If you disagree with what Michael is saying then you are an enemy of what america was established for. You are a friend to terrorism. Most of these laws were only created because the Africans that were captured were freed. We have to ask permission to be married. Why? Why do I have to ask the government to change my name? Why do I need a social security number is it a bar code? Whose property am? I thought I owned this body but for some reason the government feels otherwise. Why do we need these things? We don't, but this country and its citizens for the most part are hynotized into thinking that we do. Why does our government create rules that we have to follow. Why do I have to pay taxes? I shouldn't. Wasn't that the point of the revolutionary war. To be a sovereign people? To not have to pay taxes? But what do we do? Comply. As long as we apease these tyrants that have us under their thumb, as a people, as a country, we're destined to suffer.

Subject: TRUE Knowledge IS Power !
I just want to add, now that I've heard a bit more of the first class (I have dial up and it takes hours to load just to hear a few minutes at a time) about "OUR" land or property. I have to disagree with Michael on this, because we do NOT "own" "our" land - the Federal gov't and state owns it - we just 'rent' the "privledge" to stay on it for as long as THEY see fit ! IF WE really "OWNED" our land, no one could come along and tax it ! AND it could never be seized by anyone! TRUE, our Founders established this nation as a no-tax nation, but since 1860, this has been a Socialist dictatorship and the gov't owns everything, and everyone if they are a "citizen" of this Corporate Federal Union Government. Our Founder's gov't and nation was SEIZED IN 1860 !
Get the true history of America !

I just explained all this in my last newsletter to my list.
Lincoln and his Republican Party seized this gov't and nation in 1860 and we still live with THAT "governmnet" ever since ! I'm sure you've heard the *proud* saying of the Republicans - 'we are the party (gov't) of Lincoln.' It's true, unfortunately ! They even invented a 'hero' out of Lincoln for "history" that was to be brainwashed into all future generations !
They made that smooth-talking tyrant into a virtual god !

Remember - those who are in power are who get to say what 'history' will say and be written ! ALL nations do this ! This is all explained on web site http://TriDownTruthRoad.com
The history section is half way down the list.
I hope that Michael will offer reading articles about his classes, as many of us can't load his videos.

But we do NOT "own" the land we call 'ours' - the gov't does ! That is why we pay "rent" (taxes) on it - which by the way is FORBIDDEN BY OUR CONSTITUTION(S). So are the controls gov't puts on "our" land with their Communist Zoning !

Yes we have several Constitution(s), each one built on the one before it, but ALL are still active. NONE of them have ever been 'discontinued' !

Lincoln is who first began taxation of the land and the people (income tax) and he just wrote up his own "Amendments" and attached them to the Constitution that were never legally ratified !
To know WHY our current "government" is the way it is, you need to know our TRUE past history and how it all began and became this way !
See why 1860 and the Civil War era is called the time our Constitution and nation and government DIED. And why America has never been the same nation since ! OR the "free" nation we have consistently been told to believe it is !
Find out how the Democrats and Republicans are just two branches of the SAME party and how the SAME Elite Powers control and owns them both !

The Constitution Class by Congressional hopeful Michael Badnarik is nothing short of awesome! Aside from a couple of rather controversial remarks about Roosevelt (which I'm certain are correct) but nonetheless floored me, I found this class extremely informative and a must see by as many people that can be exposed to it.

Thank you Mr. Badnarik! My hopes are with your future campaign for Congress and future Presidency.

and that reaffirmed my beliefs in just how many of the laws that comes from Congress is really absurd.

Everyone should watch these videos and see how far the United States has strayed from its foundation.

Information about "rights" and "privileges", and the different types of courts, was very enlightening, as was most of the class.

I'm hoping that Michael puts together an advanced class that he has mentioned. It should be a class about how to implement all the newly gained knowledge in an effort to stop the ongoing loss of constitutionally protected rights.

I QUOTE ATARAX
"the video may be informative in the sense that you learn that you in fact have no rights as a citizen of the US, but it's somewhat ridiculous to think that there's anything you can do about it."

What an ignorant thing to say, that's your choice, here's mine....

1st- STOP VOTING DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN

2nd- Get everyone you know to VOTE AS WELL...

there's a million things we can do...
If atarax watched the whole thing, he didn't pay attention, he should have realized that there IS something that can be done... SPREAD THE WORD
Get everyone to watch these videos so they can see what is REALLY going on!!!!

Then vote'em OUT, make changes in the law, Modify/re-create government to reflect the needs of the people.

great 'wake-up call' video, share with friends and family

Reviewer: atarax - 2.00 out of 5 stars2.00 out of 5 stars - July 23, 2005
Subject: devolves into insanity
This video is very entertaining. Badnarik is an engaging speaker, and definitely believes what he is saying. The first few hours are very informative if somewhat incorrect (When he says something that seems too good to be true, it probably is, especially concerning allodial land titles which he refers to in the first hour. The titles to which he refers are "pseudo-allodial", in which you basically end up paying the future property taxes on the land in a lump sum. It is more a form of hedging against increased assesment values than any attainment of rights.)

The entire seven hours of the video can be summed up in a short sentence - "You can do anything you want if you're willing to kill anyone who tries to stop you." The lecture focuses on the difference between "privileges" and "rights", "privileges" being granted by a higher authority and "rights" being self-granted in the presence of no higher (recognized) authority. So, basically, you have the right to do anything you want, as long as you are willing to assert the right. This basically means that you have to shoot anyone that says otherwise. For example, you have the "right" to own any number of guns you want, and the government may have no "right" to them. However, that doesn't mean the government can't try to take them, and basically means that you have to shoot any government agent that tries to take them. Badnarik becomes more and more overt about this through the hours of video, eventually saying, literally, that if FDR were still alive today, he would assassinate him personally, and that if any government agent tries to take his guns, that he will shoot them.

From this, any person can declare a plot of land on which they reside to be their property. "Property" as described in this video basically means that the plot of land is a sovereign nation. Well, sure, all it takes to start a country is to say that your plot of land is a country, which is basically how the United States started. However, it comes down to the fact that if someone thinks that your "country" is part of theirs, then you have to kill anyone that attempts to exert authority over it.

However this sounds in principle, the fact is that if you actually try to assert any of these "rights" that Badnarik says you have, you'll end up in jail if you're lucky and dead if you're not, unless you have sufficient military resources to withstand an attack from the US government. Not likely.

In short, the video may be informative in the sense that you learn that you in fact have no rights as a citizen of the US, but it's somewhat ridiculous to think that there's anything you can do about it.

Did you know the federal government can take over your radio station remotely, instantly, and broadcast what they choose?

do you have any money? You think so? then watch this video.

Do you own your car? You think so?

Do you have Constitutional Rights? you think so?

If you have always had a suspicion that there's something fishy going on with the US government, but couldn't quite put your finger on it,
or
if you hav eheard that 'taxes are illegal' but didn't know why or how,
or
If you think that there is nothing you can do,
or if you just want a really good overview of the US Constitution, given by someone who understands it well enough to make it all sound obvious, then watc all 7 of these videos.

Burn them on disc, and send them as Christmas Presents... everyone will admire your choosing the perfect gift.

I don't rave about many of the files I download... I've downloaded about 500 gigabytes of stuff from this site, and this is one of the top 20 files I've seen... in fact, all 7 of these are in the top 20.

I recommend this series without reservation to anyone who can understand the English langage...

My rating is strictly on the content: five stars, or more...

The video quality is about a 4 or so.


Oh yeah, this guy is running for president, by the way, if he won, My impression is that he would not only attempt, but be actually ABLE to change the govt. from a pirate ship openly flying the Jolly Roger, and unlawfully preying on the weak and rifling through your wallet,...

to a smooth-running ship of state, as it was engineered to be in the first place.

But regardless of who you are voting for, this material will be flat out worth watching.

I heartily recommend this video to all. Even listening to the first part alone (see topmost download link on left-hand column of this page) will arm you with a knowledge and understanding that sadly all too few today comprehend.

If you think you don't need to watch these classes on the Constitution, you probably don't know what American means. If you think you do know and you've never heard the word "allodial" before - You don't know Jack. "Allodial" wasn't even in my dictionary...

This series is a much watch for every American, whether you're politically active or not. You will be unable to protect your rights if you don't know what they are and if you aren't demanding protection of your constitutional rights, you're not very American.

Subject: Portability
This topic is one long overdue for Americans. I have studied the Constitution for the past 30 years, and am shocked at the rampant ignorance, not only of the average layperson, but particularly of our elected representatives and even supreme Court justices! Thumbs up to Michael Badnarik for providing this class.
Unfortunatly, the providers of this seven hour Constitution Class made the mistaken asssumption that the entire world revolves around Micro$oft and its proprietary `Windows Media Player'. Just as not everyone is a demopublican (or a republicrat,) not everyone is a Micro$oft user. I myself use Linux, and cannot run Micro$oft's Windows Media Player, since it is not portable to other operating systems.
Perhaps Michael Badnarik will decide to make his class available to everyone, including me, by using a more portable format like RealPlayer, just to name one. When he does I'll be able to provide a much better review.
As it is, I give this class only one star, because the file format lacks OS-independent portability, leaving many people totally unable to see it. Please try again Michael!
